I'm going to go with a firm "no" on this one. Do not attempt to do this. Instead, follow the standard layout.
In your scheme, not only, as you've noticed, would checking out the trunk also check out all branches and all tags, which would be wasteful, it also prevents you from using the usual way to create tags, i.e. copying the trunk to the branches or tags directory -- in your scheme, you can't do this, because you can't copy a directory into itself.
$ svn cp trunk trunk/branches/foo
